Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

Turkey isn't just for Thanksgiving anymore. My family grills these tenderloins outside in summer and inside in winter. The friend who shared the recipe says the marinade is excellent with any poultry and game.

    I liked it better w/o the horseradish. Made 2 marinades one w and one w/o the horseradish. Works with chicken breasts as well.

    I couldn't find turkey tenderloin either so did it with boneless skinless chicken breast. Let it marinade overnight but still seemed to be missing something. It was nice and moist on the inside and didn't even notice the horseradish taste. Maybe fresh garlic cloves minced and some other seasonings would make it better. Still worth doing again.

    I couldn't find Turkey tenderlions so I used skinless, boneless chicken. My family of pickey eaters LOVED IT!!
